Plying Bracelet

Time again to share one of my all-time favorite spinning tips. I had a beginner spinner come to the booth this weekend, and they were looking at fiber to go with a single they had spun.

Relocating the Stash

Because as the saying goes: “Home is where the stash resides.” I am moving. It’s really great ’cause I will be closer to work, really close to some good friends, and walking distance from some of my favorite shops and restaurants (including a certain local yarn shop…) It’s really not great because moving stresses me […]

You Spin Me Right Round

I need to give a shout-out to the universe today. Thank you, universe, for bringing me so much amazing spinning content as of late. I don’t know if more people are picking it up because of lockdowns, or because they got spinning stuff for Christmas, or if they’ve always been here and just now discovered […]
